An email or a text?

There is a valid email that goes out on Mondays for ads that are about to expire and it does look like you have an ad that just expired.
(Maybe you deleted it?)

If you're unsure, please forward it to my email address listed below so I can check it out.

The scammers have been texting people with a message and website link that leads to a fake Samba login page:
Text message with a link to a "free" website:
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

Fake login page on that website
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.

If you look at the address line at the top, this website is NOT from TheSamba.com

It's from "webhostapp.com"

If you enter your username/password on that page, they will steal your account information and use it to post scam ads here.

If Michele is a registered member I would think, based on these recent emails, that the account should be cancelled.

Nah, It's generates different names all the time and all from "non registered users". Just got 5 more..

Always nice with interest for old vw from the opposite gender, but they could be a bit less promiscuous. Laughing

If any real female is asking about a part for sale today I guess it's going straight to the trash by misstake.. Confused
